Today is part three of my Leadership Make & Takes… Today I’m sharing FOUR cards.. the two combine Basic Gray and Yellow (daffodil delight) which seems to be quite a popular combination among news casters and the fashion industry at the moment!
LOL, if you happen to be chosen as the winner of this week’s mega blog candy, you’ll have plenty of ideas to work with, right? Read this post for details on the Mega Blog Candy Contest for US and International readers.
Unusual color selection.. Daffodil Delight, Basic Bray, Elegant Eggplant, Pink and Pear Pizzazz. A great workshop setting card, I re-made this into a sample which was more ‘my style’ too.
And all I did was add a Basic Gray card base, emboss the daffodil delight card stock, and turn the stamped sentiment so it was horizontally aligned.
The edges of the mixed bunch blossom punched image and larger die cut flower were curled with my paper piercing tool. Oh, and tea stain ink from the distressing kit was sponged onto the edges of the stamped image too.
I didn’t change a thing on this sample… it’s a really quick and easy card to make, and features a chipboard element from On Board Merry Medley (page 191 IB&C 2011-12).
We traced the Merry Medley chipboard element onto very vanilla card stock, distressed the edges with tea stain ink from the distressing kit and glued the two pieces together. The tiny flowers are also die cuts from that single sheet of Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit too!
The stamped, scallop edge punched card stock along the left side of the card was attached with stampin’ dimensionals, allowing me to slip the sentiment between the layers too.
LOL, I didn’t have any more red die cut flowers left on my sheet of blossom builders, so I made my own with the Daisy Triple Layer Punch, Polka Dot Embossing folder, and white gel pen. (I actually have a full sheet of the die cuts left, but was challenging myself to use only one sheet on all the samples.)
The narrow grosgrain ribbon was attached to real red card stock using double sided adhesive (SNAIL) after clipping notches into the ends.
Tomorrow is Saturday, and that means another NEW Super Saturday Tutorial! I hope you’ll stop back by and say hi!
